Alternative Cinema is the online intersection between the divergent subcultures of British independent, underground, experimental, protest, cult, Avant- Garde, D.I.Y. and Artist’s film and video. It’s an event listings guide which covers the film club scene through to pop-up cinemas, microcinemas, gallery installations, local film festivals and pub screenings. If you want to join the audience, this is the gate to the spectacular and subversive realm of alternative cinema.

The minimum requirement is that your event must be some kind of alternative to the commercial mainstream feature film industry.

Inappropriate listings will be removed.
